About Chloe:I am currently looking forward to starting my second year of Economics at Warwick and I hope to pursue a career in professional services. I love getting back to my roots – I am on the Executive Committee for the Caribbean Culture society and I practice yoga regularly. I am also a strong believer in the importance of mental health awareness. As such I represent the charity The National Children’s Bureau on the steering committee of one of the largest trials of in-school humanistic counselling there has ever been, the ETHOS trial, conducted by the University of Roehampton.
Favourite thing about Bright Network:I love that Bright Network compiles everything you need to complete your transition from sixth form to the working world into one easy to access location. From when I had no idea what I was interested in, to needing some CV tips, and recently when I was looking for specific insight weeks, Bright Network was always my first port of call. Also, I love that the more I have used Bright Network, the more I have gotten out of it.
